Description

Lot #1112 - The replacement for Aston Martin's long-running V8 models and the Vantage V8 in particular, was introduced in 1988 at the Birmingham Motor Show. Named Virage, its hand-formed aluminum body was more graceful and less angular than its predecessors and remarkably modern, low and clean in its execution. However, the car was more than a powerful gentleman's express. The 330hp 5.3-liter engine was now equipped with Weber-Marelli fuel injection and a new head featuring four-valves per cylinder engineered by performance specialists Callaway in Connecticut, well-known for their tire-shredding, twin-turbocharged Corvettes. The first Virages arrived in the United States in the summer of 1990, joined by the cabriolet Volante version two years later and a Vantage edition shortly thereafter. Its quarter-million-dollar price tag and low production numbers, however, placed it solidly out of reach of the average sports car buyer and more firmly as a solid alternative to the contemporary Bentley Turbo R. This one is equipped with automatic transmission. 6,991 actual miles.
